No There There

Just a few things to note, really, before I entirely scrub this entire fuck-circus of a week out of my brain:

1. NCAA madness is upon us! I have even entered a bracket, or whatever, into competition! I have no idea what I'm doing! Basically, whenever I think that there's nothing left to not care about, I fondly remember that college sports exist. There was much excitement today because, I hear, the Huskies won, which is pleasing to me, because I honestly do care about the near-success of all Washington sports teams: it is genuinely funny every time one of our teams gets close to winning anything, and then inevitably it all ends in ashes. Cleveland: will you marry us?

2. The wife was just channel-surfing and spontaneously broke out laughing. Why? The Sci-Fi channel, always high-rent entertainment, was playing the movie Leprechaun. I want to kiss the programmer who thumbs-upped this for St. Paddy's Day.

3. I don't normally do this, but I'm going to reprint a reader comment onto the main page here, because it's kind of made my night. (And I thought Leprechaun was going to be the highlight.)

A few posts back, I made fun of a video store rental called Made in Estonia, with the indelible tagline, "MADE WITH PEOPLE!" I also took the minimal trouble to IMDB it, and wondered what the actual Estonian title could possibly mean. An Estonian reader has responded. And I am so happy.

"Made in Estonia" is actually quite qute movie for Estonian :) Ok, it love-hate movie and people here are pretty much divided about it. But it has great soundtrack (listen to Genialistid here It actually started as a morning show where two guiys performed as two married couple. One playing female for one couple, the other for other one. Growed into a hit TV-show, toured Estonia and finally made a movie. And title "Vanad ja kobedad saavad jalad alla" means something like "Old and perky (?) get their shit together".

This is the best comment my blog has ever received, and I really mean that. I'm getting old, I'm sort of perky, and I do need to get my shit together.

I'm so going to visit Estonia.

You have an Estonian readership? Unbe-freaking-lievable.

Have fun storming the castle. Try not to catch another case of the angry ass.

This is my my first visit to your blog. I also know nothing about college basketball, and entered a bracket into a little office contest. I think next time, I will just take a $10 bill out of my pocket and set it on fire.

Nice site. Consider it bookmarked.

Here in ACC country, the natives are getting JACKED on roundball. It's kind of exciting to see close and well-fought games; however, it does mean that most everybody is working through the day like NCAA zombies. I am pulling for UNC only because I want to see Franklin Street burn like it did in 1993 (and, admittedly, I have a couple of couches I need to get rid of...)
